Web programming for the BEST - Lively kernel

General description

The widespread adoption of the World Wide Web has fundamentally changed the landscape of software development. In the past few years, the Web has become the de facto deployment environment for new software systems and applications. We believe that in the next 5-10 years, the vast majority of new software applications will be written for the Web. In this new era of web-based software, applications live on the Web as services; they consist of data, code and other resources that can be located anywhere in the world.
